In Get Out, there is a scene in the beginning of the film showing Rose and Chris hitting a deer on the way to her parent's house. It actually appears like the deer is thrown at their car.
After watching the movie, I don't really understand what the significance is regarding this scene as it appears that the deer is thrown at the car somehow.
I understand that Rose's father does not like the deer around his property because he claims that they destroy the ecosystem:
I don't mean to get on my high horse, but I'm telling you I do not like the deer. I'm sick of it. They're taking over. They're like rats. They destroy the ecosystem. If I see a dead deer on the side of the road, I think to myself that's a start. You know what? I am grateful for what you have done today. I don't like them.
Also, the deer incident caused unwanted attention by law enforcement that Rose and her family obviously wouldn't want.
Was the deer actually thrown at their car? If so, is it ever explained why the deer would be intentionally thrown at their car?
